who will have a shot and a beer with you, and talk to people to get their rent money together, but mitt romney was not it. all of this admirable qualities and his gracious concession speech -- >> chris christie is not exactly the guy you want to raise after this election, the bear hug for obama. some people might have called that a lot dance. that is extremely disturbing. i do not want that image in my mind. he will be quarantined for a couple of months. i agree with mark. obama ran a brilliant campaign. he did not have a record. and he succeeded. he did extremely well. and he is right. i would say mitt romney is a good and decent man and who -- would have made a good president. he was not a good campaigner. i think he was weakened by the republican primaries, weakened by the 47%, and in the end he had really bad luck. a week before the election he was ahead in just about all the polls by a lot -- >> no. >> i think it was pre-empted in the last week. i am not sure he would have 1. >> i do not think he was ahead. but when we left here last week, mark and i looked at each other
. and even the right's beloved super pac designed to do to obama what obama did to romney backfired. remember aidle son, las vegas billionaire? said he's give up to $100 million to help romney defeat the socialist obama? why did he have to give so much money? because he gave so much to gingrich in the primaries to defeat vulture capitalist romney, the half-hour bain attack ad was produced and distributed by romney sugar daddy sheldon aidle son. it wasn't murder. it was auto erotica asphyxiation. the highlight of fox's total melted down for me-- and there were a lot of highlights. i'm a bit of a connoisseur-- was to see where they ultimately landed. the place they could go to in their own minds to rationalize the utter destruction of bull ( bleep ) mountain. >> it was almost four years of division and class warfare. we need to hope and pray that the president understands now that, that policy is divisive, and that policy is destructive to the future of the united states. >> let's hope a lesson has been learned, and he surprises with us some moderation. >> hope is important. >> jon: yes, let t
in the romney campaign that somehow if you were responding you were losing, but by sitting back and not doing anything, they didn't have a lot of money and this was the primary season hadn't been opened up to the general campaign dollars yet, but by sitting back, they did allow the president to brand him that way and when you looked at the exit poll numbers and questions people asked, that was certainly the impression left with lots of americans. >> paul: and jason,the romney camp told me in august they didn't feel they had enough money to respond at the time to make either both a positive and defensive message to those ads and they went with the positive one and here is what romney will do on day one. and i also think those attacks had a kind of voter impact on some of the lower middle class voters, and explains maybe in part ohio why romney didn't get the same number of votes, 2 million votes, 2 1/2 million votes lower than john mccain. >> i think what stands out about obama's victory to me is how ugly it was, this was identity politics on steroids telling black people republicans wanted to

. >> and to richard's point, no amount of money was going to fix mitt romney's problem with hispanic voters given where he was on immigration. no amount of money was going to fix mitt romney's problems with a lot of women voters given where he was on planned parenthood. >> that ought to be the lesson. >> those were tactical decisions that were made on issues that put him in a place that made it very hard for him to win the number of votes he was going to need. >> and that's what people who write the checks should be angry about more than anything else. >>> still ahead, former presidential candidate jon huntsman, congressman peter king and tom brokaw.

, landslide. you also had some great tweets. romney lost because they didn't have enough money. you said when they call florida for obama i'm going to raise a toast to al gore. >> that made me feel good, you know to think that he won it by what was it 73, 76,000 votes. >> stephanie: yep. >> caller: lets not ever forget what happened to al gore in the state of florida. one of my first tweets from election night was, you know, in bed by 11:00. i mean, i was kind of surprised you know, when some of the vote counts from florida were coming back and things like that, but what's fascinating is a cbs report the next day talking about how romney aides were completely shocked because they bought into all this need i can't no one accepts the misinformation, all the polls were skewed, heading colorado by two, florida was going to be off the board by 8:30, and it's amazing. >> stephanie: yep. >> caller: it really is this completely closed media loop. i thought it was just the media i thought it was just fox news doing their thing to make money and they were suckering their viewers. >> stephanie: you run

accounting, if you will, to are reduce your taxes so you're only paying 14 or 15%, remember, mitt romney who made $20 million, he was only paying effectively a tax rate of 14 or 15 because most of that money came from investment income interest, if you will, as opposed to salary which would be much higher, 35%. there are creative ways to do it but let's see in the math adds up and you make a dent on reducing the deficit. >> all right. wolf blitzer, thank you. do appreciate it. i like to give a plug to your show. tune in at 4:00 p.m. eastern today, "the situation room," only on cnn. thank you, wolf. >> thank you. >>> i have some stuff i want to bring to light. we have a couple more nuggets coming to light in the david petraeus scandal. a friend of the suddenly disgraced cia chief and former four-star general says that general petraeus never gave paula broadwell classified information and has not had affairs with any other women. and i will suggest, once again, even though the local newspaper suggests that indeed there's another person who happens to be a woman, separately this friend, who has

financing for the primary and general election. that took limits off. president obama and mitt romney raising record amounts of money themselves. seems like the height of irony. if the money would have been spent on some other purpose, what might have happened. host: how much each candidate spent. that is just the two candidates. guest: the final accounting is not in yet. host: there is another story from "time business." $6 billion invested in this economy. did we see a boost in the sluggish economy? guest: christmas in september for the television stations in some of battleground states. stations were cutting back on programming so they could fit in all the advertising. we have tried to get a handle on the tv ads and have created a database which pulls in the advertising that is not registered at the federal communications commission. it is the top 50 markets. we are trying to pull that together and have asked volunteers to go to some of the uncovered markets and help us collect the other advertising. there are these concentrated pockets of spending in these communities. the televis
work to do and the more work we have to do the more money we make. >> host: what are the loopholes that the companies exploit? >> guest: for one i've been calling on mitt romney you could live tax-free. you invest in instruments that don't pay a dividend. deutsch interest they won't pay any tax on that. with a billion dollars a cubic 5% you will make $50 million the first year and say i have a lavish lifestyle we have the family plaine and private schools and this and that what we define $10 million. the banker once $10 million to pay 2% interest it's now grown to a billion 50 million the 10 million next year the fortune grows to 1.1 billion you have spent 20 million plus about $300,000 in interest you will be better and better off and not contribute at all to the cost of the government if you are a hedge fund manager or private equity manager as romney was during 2001 when he was the owner of bain capital the government rules allow you to be for all of your income in your fund and pay no taxes. you might have other investments in the income but pretty much you can live tax-free. i
republican who wouldn't be willing to put more money on the table. i have to ask you about the president's strategy brifg in business leaders. this is a smart strategy and getting some of those people that many aassume would support romney and maybe donated to him, wall street fellows, who could be helpful to the president now. >> there's a big movement among some business leaders to push for any deal on the fiscal cliff between now and the end of the year. although they worry about the prospect of increased taxes, they're worried about the prospect over the fiscal cliff and the damage to the u.s. economy. there are business groups raising money to run tv ads, for example, pushing for congress to come to a deal here. so the president has an ally there in some business folks that he maybe didn't have on the campaign trail now that attention is turning to this fight. it's simply good politics for the president to meet with the progressive folks and the ceos and as many people as he can so when they get to the point of a deal, he can say, look, i listened to all perspectives here. >> we hea
